Michael Quane: Two New Pieces

July 12th to August 6th, 2018 at the O’Driscoll Bldg near the river in the centre of Skibbereen.

Opening reception:  Friday, July 13,  6 – 8 pm

The occasion of a few new pieces of work by Michael Quane is worthy of celebration.

Michael Quane is a well-known contemporary sculptor who was born in Cork in 1962 and studied science at UCC before attending the Crawford College of Art. His themes are usually centred around relationships between horses, other animals and people that are rarely at ease.  His examples of heroic horses and riders manage to combine a unique strength and dignity with a quirky humour.   Recently he has been working on a series of studies of human figures defining gravity, floating in space in unusual poses, called “Bouyed.”

The artist, now based in Leap, Co. Cork, works in stone, usually limestone, but also marble. He has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally and has had several large-scale publicly sited sculptures to his credit such as Horses and Riders at the Mallow roundabout.

The show runs until Monday, August 6th.  The exhibition is open Monday – Friday 11 – 5 and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 to 4.
